Crafty Creations with Disney, Marvel, Pixar & Star Wars – From our family to yours Canal Walk’s Holiday Family Fun inspired by Disney.

In a first of its kind, some of the world’s most endearing brands have come together with Canal Walk Shopping Centre to present a fun series of creativity over the upcoming Summer holidays.

Inspired by Disney’s From Our Family To Yours campaign which features a brand new festive advert, as well as the latest and greatest gifting solutions from  Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars, Canal Walk will be offering a variety of locally sourced craft activity kits. Aimed at kids 4-12 years old, the kits will be on offer in timed sessions every 30 minutes, each day from 16 December 2020 to 3 January 2021.

Making for great gifts, Disney, Marvel, Pixar & Star Wars-inspired pencil holders, key rings jewellery, Christmas decorations and more, can be made by willing hands and imaginative minds.

With competitions and prizes galore up for grabs, youngsters are encouraged to dress-up for the occasion as their favourite Disney and Pixar characters, Marvel super heroes or Star Wars Jedi’s and Sith’s, with Style Spotters and Fashion Police squads on the look-out for the best dressed. Alternatively, there are a number of character-led photo stations on site for all to take their selfies and stand a chance to win awesome prizes.

To honour the season of giving, customers can donate to Reach for a Dream and stand a chance to win a Dream Shopping Spree valued at R5000. Reach for a Dream Dream-makers will be on hand at the Disney Christmas Tree, adorned with Disney plush toys, to receive donations and competition entries. All Disney plush toys will be donated to Reach for a Dream, made possible by the Hyprop Foundation.

Video Calls with Santa

Due to social distancing, and joining the world of digital, Santa will be available for video chats at Canal Walk. Little ones can chat to Santa face-to-face and tell him all their Christmas wishes. “Christmas may be a little different this year, but we wanted to continue the tradition of meeting Santa at Canal Walk Shopping Centre” says Vanessa Herbst, Marketing Manager at Canal Walk. “Using modern technology and our strong relationship with the North Pole we managed to book out some one-on one-time with Santa” says Herbst. Santa will be online from 11am to 4pm, 16 to 24 December.

Appropriate COVID-19 safety procedures and protocols will be in place and will be enforced, for all activities.

Extended trading hours will commence from 15 – 23 December. The Canal Walk gift wrapping stations will open from 11 – 24 December – funds received will be donated to Reach for a Dream with pricing starting at R15.
